Neil,
I would have mounted those transom eyes vertically rather than horizontally. I think they would have been stronger and less likely to break.

The new bolts should work fine. I was thinking of putting some on mine and then adding boat buckles to the trailer frame. I had them on my old fishing boat and it made for a sweet setup.

Nice work Neil, looks fantastic. I'm gonna have to make sure you have all your tanks full, Charlie riding shotgun with you and both your coolers full to be able to keep you behind me on the water now.
